Researchers reported in October 2014 that a higher Omega-3 fatty acid index is associated with increased insulin sensitivity and improved metabolic profile in overweight men.  The AHA states that metabolic syndrome affects approximately 34% of American adults.  In this study, researchers evaluated 47 overweight men with an average age of 46.5 years.  Increasing Omega-3 index was associated with higher insulin sensitivity and disposition index and lower CRP levels.  This is another benefit of Omega-3 fatty acids.
